Admission process from Lancashire County Council Local Education Authority

Admission arrangements for children part way through the year or after Reception

Here at Bowerham our admission process is very straightforward. In the first instance, you need to contact the school office who will be able to confirm if we have places available in the relevant year groups.

We will take some basic details from you and add your child/ren to our waiting list.

Once a place becomes available for your child, we will contact you to arrange an appointment to look round the school. If you still wish to move, we would then formally offer you a place.

Pupils transferring from another school will be asked to inform their current school of their intention to move, we will then contact them to arrange a transfer date and organise any transfer of records and other information.

For a detailed explanation of how we deal with oversubscriptions and a clear explanation of our admission criteria, please see the LCC policy listed below.
